Peachtree is now called Sage 50.

It's the same small business accounting software that you have always used, but now has a new name.

Sage 50 Learning Center

Our Sage 50 Learning Center is a resource that is specifically designed to help accounting students learn how to use the Sage 50 Complete Accounting software. Since the Learning Center is available online, your students can access our extensive learning resources at any time to learn the software at their own pace.

The Sage 50 Learning Center offers students:

  • video tutorials
  • numerous screen illustrations and
  • detailed step-by-step instructions

explaining key software features so that students do not feel intimidated or overwhelmed if they have never used accounting software before.

Integrated with Perdisco's Sage 50 practice sets

Perdisco’s authors and instructional team have specially designed the Sage 50 Learning Center as a fully integrated learning resource for our Sage 50 practice sets. As well as being openly available outside our practice sets, the Learning Center is built into each practice set itself. This means your students will be able to access the Learning Center from within their practice set as and when they require the support that it affords.

Further, since the same authoring team (of academic, instructional, editorial, and IT experts) worked together to create the practice sets, the Learning Center and the VirtualTutor’s AutoGrading algorithms, the instructional design of the unified resources extends deeply into every aspect of their coordinated operations. For example, where a concept within a practice set is taught directly in the Learning Center it is graded with fewer points (because it is deemed to be easier) than similar concepts within the practice set that have been designed to extend the teaching material provided within the Learning Center.

Helpful, but students cannot use it to cheat

This design approach, coupled with our AntiCheat technology, encourages active learning because students cannot merely use the Learning Center to answer their practice set. Instead, students must engage with applying the Learning Center to the real-world situations presented within the practice set and the best students will identify (and be rewarded for identifying) some of the subtle nuances and complexities genuinely faced by real-world accountants who must use the Sage 50 software to achieve value-added financial accounting outcomes for their employers and clients.

How much does it cost? Absolutely nothing!

Perdisco is proud to make our Sage 50 Learning Center openly and freely available on the internet for everyone and anyone to use at anytime. While we feel it is most powerfully used in conjunction with our integrated VirtualTutor Sage 50 practice set, our Learning Center nevertheless stands alone as a value-added teaching and learning resource for Sage 50 Complete Accounting. Please tell others about this fantastic free learning resource. If you or any of your teaching colleagues want to use our Learning Center to teach Sage 50 without any obligation to use our practice set – please do so! We created the Learning Center for the teaching community and want it to be used.
